I don't understand how to install The Sims 3 complete collection?

Post by AshCloud23 on Fri 19 Aug 2016, 04:35

Sorry, Ive read the must read post before comung here but I still dont understand. Ive downloaded The Sims 3 complete collection and opened it. What now? I dont know how or when to install manual patch or ultimate fix? When i copied the #crack into my bin the previous try, I replaced it and now Sims says ' The Sims 3 had stopped working '. Also on the indtructions it says[size=41] You may skip the #xrack folder. You do not need to use the #crack folder, what does it mean by this?[/size]

Hello,


Ok, let's take it step by step. 


-Just install the base game first, and run the manual patch.
-Now, run the installers for the expansionpacks one by one, it doesn't matter in which order.
-You can run the patch again, it'll tell you it has already been updated, but the patch also patches the expansions.
-Lastly, go into the #crack folder and copy both files to your base game\bin, allowing these files to replace the original ones that are in there.


This ought to do, please post if you run into trouble.


Skipping the crack folders refers to the cracks that are inside the expansionpacks that are downloaded separately, but since you use the "Complete Collection", it doesn't apply to your situation.

The #Crack-folder is inside your Complete Collection-download of TS3. It contains two files: the TS3W.exe and the TSLHost.dll. These 2 files must be copied and pasted to the location C:\Program files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. When prompted, replace the existing files.

If the game still crashes, then you may need to try other solutions. For a start, check out the thread here:
